Quirky Nights Glamping

Recommended Posts

Monday 17th October was rather a strange day, seeing a BR Southern Region EMU in Co. Sligo in the North West of Ireland.

 

Quirky Nights Glamping have purchased 3CIG 1498 from the Epping & Ongar Railway in Essex and plan to convert it in to sleeping accommodation in their transport themed glamping village. The brainchild of David Mc'Gowan the village currently contains a Boeing 767, Double Decker Bus and Taxis. Other items yet to arrive include a Helicopter and a Yatch.

 

 

The train made the move from Ongar on Thursday night and travelled across the Irish Sea with Seatruck from Heysham on Sunday afternoon. The move to Co. Sligo took place during the earlier hours of day morning.

As ever some great pics. It was like being there. It's a shame the 767 came with the cockpit stripped. It might have been an additional attraction for campers to visit the cockpit and 'play' pilot. Still the whole concept of 'Quirky Clamping' looks great. Hope it proves a success for him. Its great to see folk thinking outside the box if they have a good business plan.

Everything was bought for scrap value so its a bonus if there is anything inside them thats not been already removed
